Several times a year to escape the confusion and noise of the city I travel to Idyllwild. This is a charming mountain town less than two hours from San Diego and Los Angeles providing a variety of shops and galleries and restaurants. Almost every weekend there will be an event-a concert, a film festival, a parade. I stay at the... More

Not bad for $109 per night. Small air conditioner not able to keep the room cool during afternoon.Took two fans to make the temperature tolerable. Never had issue with hearing neighbors that other reviews have commented on.

Looking for a siren get-away for a couple of days? Strawberry Creek Inn Bunkhouse or their sister property, Strawberry Creek Inn B&B are a great choice. First impressions are always a must and though the landscape is a bit tired at the Bunkhouse, the facilities are looking fine. The nitty pine and peck cedar walls and ceiling are immaculate. A...

We arrived on Friday afternoon with our 3 year old grandson in tow so my husband could go hiking on Mt. San Jacinto the next morning. In light of the comments that stated "walls are paper thin" we prepped our toddler to use a quiet voice so we would not disturb the other guests. He was great...it was the rude... More

My wife, dog, and I spent two nights at the bunkhouse. As said in previous reviews, this inn has pluses and minuses. In the end, I think the positive attributes win out. The couple that runs the property is very nice and accommodating. The room itself was small and clean, but could use updating - specifically in the shower. The... More

The price was right so my fiance stayed here for two nights while we explored Idyllwild for the first time. We loved the cabin-feel to it, and the balcony overlooking the forrest was perfect for enjoying a bottle of wine. The location is great, we just walked into town every day/night so we didn't have to drive. The walls are... More

We're just back from a two night stay at the Bunkhouse. It was very clean with a nice, woodsy vibe. Staff, especially Holly, were quite friendly and accommodating. Before booking, though, you may want to consider: It was built in the 50's with no sound insulation between rooms. The rooms are very small. Our bathroom was 3' x 5'. Breakfast... More

The Bunkhouse is a great place if you want to get away. If you want a babysitter for your kids, dog park, theme park rides, a pool, TV, etc. then this isn't for you. This is the place you go when you've had enough of that stuff. The rooms are are clean, you can prepare a sandwich, make coffee, stroll... More

We came with our son, his friend, and our dog. The rooms were very small, the heater noisy, the walls too thin, the shower was like a camp shower, the 1 positive were the scones, they were delicious. I would never stay here again.

We got "that" deal through Amazon local, and our stay was all right! Cozy room - yes, definitely old style, but came with frig, 2-burner cooktop (which we did not need/use), kitchen sink with dishes, utensils, soap etc, mini-coffee maker, coffee, sugars, creamers. Unfortunately, no microwave, at least in our unit, and no tea. Room was dark, and there was... More
